Overview

The final chapter in the saga of Christopher Sinclair, mechanical engineer turned priest of war. Be careful what you wish for. Christopher finds himself on a throne, squeezing taxes, and guarding against incipient rebellions. This is a far cry from his democratic socialist revolution. But the danger is not limited to self-betrayal. He has seen the face of his true enemy, and it is a face of nightmare. Immortals and nigh-immortals have plans for him, plots that span a hundred thousand years, and traps of unimaginable deviousness. Against all this, what can one reluctant ruler do? The answer, of course: build a bigger bomb.

About the Author

M.C. Planck is the author of Verdict on Crimson Fields, Judgment at Verdant Court, Gold Throne in Shadow, and Sword of the Bright Lady. After a nearly-transient childhood, he hitchhiked across the country and ran out of money in Arizona. So he stayed there for thirty years, raising dogs, getting a degree in philosophy, and founding a scientific instrument company. Having read virtually everything by the old masters of SF&F, he decided he was ready to write. A decade later, with a little help from the Critters online critique group, he was actually ready. He was relieved to find that writing novels is easier than writing software, as a single punctuation error won't cause your audience to explode and die. When he ran out of dogs, he moved to Australia to raise his daughter with kangaroos.

Even sorting out some of the pieces of the ending, I felt extremely entranced by how big the puzzle really was, and even more so by what they came together to make in their totality. An amazing last book to a beautiful and intellectual and emotional bomb of a series. Very sad to see it end, and I can't wait for more stories in the world of Prime!

The pacing of the story felt like a car that just kept increasing in speed until it comes to a sudden stop. It’s as though the author got tired of the story and tried to cram everything he’d come up with so far into this book so he wouldn’t have to write another book.
